In the dead of night, Ayesha takes her daughter, Sabina, and slips quietly from her home, leaving behind a life of full of pain. Boarding a coach to London, all Ayesha wants is a fresh start. Hayden, a former popstar, has kept himself hidden away for years. He's only opened up his home to two people - Crystal, a professional dancer with a heart of gold, and Joy, an ill-tempered retiree with a soft spot for waifs and strays.
When Crystal asks Hayden if Ayesha and Sabina can stay with them, he reluctantly agrees and, as different as they may be, they quickly form an unlikely bond. So when enemies threaten their peaceful home, they will do all they can to save it and each other.
Uplifting and emotional, this is a novel of new beginnings, of discovering love and of finding A Place to Call Home.

"Matthews is one of the few writers who can rival Marian Keyes gift for telling heart -warming tales with buckets of charm and laughs" (Daily Record)
This audiobook ranks highly among the many books I have listened to. The storyline was enhanced by the exceptional reading of the narrator who switched between dialects with supreme ease that made the story 'real' and brought it 'alive'.
The narrator captured ones interest in the story right from the beginning of the first chapter as she described Ayesha and her daughters escape from a life of pain. I thought I could actually hear Ayesha's heart thumping!!
In the first chapter the hushed tone Rita used as she described their escape made me believe i was there watching & listening for the creak of the stair board. Rita's change between characters also made each of them real.
Would never want to belittle the exceptional writing of the author by renaming her book.
Ive looked to see if the author has any other audible books....but alas...no.
Great book Carole Matthews...with love..!!
